is spam

Regretfully... it depends on how your mail server identifies messages... 
ZMailer does so based on the inode number which is frequently reused (at 
least, in linux, it can be a matter of several reuses within a couple of 
seconds in a somehow loaded server).

I did write a patch which gives really unique id's to every message (see 
the thread
in the mailing list.

I use this to generate an alternate log (in which gives 
1 line for every message with the Id, timestamp, the origin info (IP & mail 
from), subject, spam status, spamassassin info, etc.
1 line for every recipient telling me the recipient address
1 line for every virus or other problem report

These lines are all written in a bunch so they don't intermix.

All these is based on the SQLLogging function.

Regretfully, Julian never added the Id to the distribution (maybe it is a 
little cpu intensive, but I didn't notice any drawbacks using medium-sized 
hardware), so I have to keep patching it... whenever I have time, I publish 
the patches and say it so in the mailing list.
